Details on the Critter House Project

We finished our hay..COMPLETELY! Hip Hip Hooray!

We also painted our Critter House

I have had some readers ask for a good, non-toxic paint choice. From my research Ecos Organic Paints is one of the better choices.

I have also bee asked how we built the Critter House from the pallets. As usual, we make it u as we go along lol. 

We figured out (roughly) what size we wanted. In this case, I am using it for ducks..so it didn’t need to be huge.

Hubby cut the pallet wood, and used recycled nails he pulled from the pallet wood to construct this critter house.  See pic above, and below.

We spared no expense for Donald, Daisy, and Howard to have a duck house ;-)That’s how we roll!

This project went smooth, these pics were taken before we painted it. 

We are planning a new chicken coop that we are going to make about the same way. I will make sure I take the pics as we put it together (hubby was in charge of the “as we go” pics…major fail..lol) So… we got them AFTER it was built. Not that I am a photographer by any stretch of the imagination, but his were SAD. (Love ya hun!)

So, there it is. Easy. Free. What’s not to like?
